Globus Enhances Latin America Tour, Package Portfolio for 2013
Globus is stepping up to meet the rising demand for travel to Latin America by enhancing its catalog of tours and packages for the region with a number of updates. The company is tweaking itineraries with additional days in certain cities, adding more insider experiences, and adding new tours and independent vacation packages. Scott Nisbet, president and CEO of the Globus family of brands, said the company is “maximizing cultural access with such experiences as offering a private Argentine tango lesson in Buenos Aires and visiting local family homes to get a glimpse into day-to-day life.”
Globus is offering seven updated tours in South America for 2013, and 35 tour combinations, including the company’s most popular vacation, the 12-day Legacy of the Incas. Among the new programs for 2013 is the eight-day Peru Splendors tour, part of Globus’ “Take a Break” series. It includes visiting a local Peruvian food market in Lima; touring the Incan ruins of the Sacred Valley, visiting a local home and joining in a Mother Earth ceremony; riding a train through the Urumbamba Valley to Machu Picchu; and visiting the Santo Domingo Monastery in Cusco. The trip can be extended with three nights in the Peruvian Amazon, a Galápagos cruise, or three nights on Easter Island.
Monograms is offering a new independent nine-day Costa Rica Wonders with Tortuguero (priced from $1,269). Globus’ Latin America programs include the new eight-day Peru Splendors, the 12-day Legacy of the Incas, the nine-day South America Escape, the 16-day South American Odyssey, the 15-day Spirit of South America, the nine-day Natural Wonders of Costa Rica and the eight-day Costa Rica: Pura Vida family vacation.
